Open Positions at the Center for Climate Science

Postdoctoral Position in Climate Change and the Global Hydrologic Cycle

The UCLA Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences and Center for Climate Science seek a postdoctoral scholar to be supervised by Prof. Alex Hall. The position would begin as soon as possible. The term would initially be for one year, but is renewable for one or more years, contingent on satisfactory progress.

The general research involves using global climate models to identify and understand large-scale changes in the hydrologic cycle under climate change, with a particular focus on heavy precipitation and drought. The project on which the postdoctoral scholar will be working is part of a larger effort to better understand and project the future of hydrologic extremes, including the use of emergent constraints as an uncertainty-reduction method.

Any candidate with interest in this topic is invited to apply. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences or a related field, effective oral and written communication skills, and strong programming and analytical skills.

Applicants should submit (1) a statement of research interests and goals, no longer than one page, and (2) a complete CV, including contact information for three references. These materials should be addressed to Ms. Katharine Reich. Consideration of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
